Anyone here have Irritable Bowel Sydnrome (IBS)?

My partner started a medication a few months ago, and since then has been experiencing IBS. Even just a slice of bread now causes terrible sickness - pain, bloating, bedridden. I feel so bad. Does anyone else have experience with IBS?

What is the medication? If the medication has side effects that are intolerable, tell the doctor to make modifications.

Sounds like your partner should discuss this with their doctor.

I had it a couple years ago. It started when I had a bad lamb burger from some hipster place near Yonge and Eglinton and it grew from there. I don't know if it was a bacterial infection, something mental, or what, but for like a year I'd get random attacks.

I started avoiding certain foods (coffee, dairy, sugar) and taking probiotics and metamucil on a regular basis. That, and I stepped up the exercise and fixed my sleeping habits. It stuck around for a bit longer, but eventually went away.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?
